Everything seems to indicate that the next revolutionary product from Apple will go from being in your pockets to your head. The heavily rumored mixed reality headset has been the subject of conversation for years now, but it’s still a bit unclear when we’ll see it. However, for Apple it is not a trivial matter: the famous analyst Ming Chi Kuo already said in 2021 that the company’s objective is “replace the iPhone with augmented reality in 10 years“. Will he get it?
What do we know so far about the mixed reality headset?
In the absence of weeks to celebrate the Apple’s WWDC 2023 (the developer conference), we already know a few things that will be featured. One of them is iOS 17, added to Apple’s mixed reality headset. Rumors aside, the company itself has already registered the name of an operating system that could be the one carried by these helmets: xrOS.
